No word on how many Taliban it will be traded for if captured.

    I am fascinated that this ‘mule’ is controlled by a sensor on the marine’s boot. How long before we see one of these on “Dancing with the Stars”?

    THe final proof is how well it operates under actual combat conditions and how easy it is to maintain in the field but if you can increase the supply capacity of a small, mobile force this much without adding more mouths to feed, either human or animal, it could be a pretty big force multiplier for our guys.
